/ What should I be looking for in a Museli?
serious question. I have lost a lot of weight and I am looking to shift from Porridge to Muesli for summer breakfasts, now generally I would just pick the cheapest, job sorted, but I think I have heard that Museli is not always the healthy option that it cracks up to be, no idea why.
So is this a choice to consider or just pick up Aldi`s cheapest. Supermarkets I have access to are Asda, Tesco, CoOp, Aldi and Morrisons.
One without added whey. Unless you're going to eat it with water not milk anyway.
And small stones,
Thanks for the replies. It`s sounding like maybe the deluxe offerings may not be the best. I shall have to go to the supermarket with my reading glasses.
Very small rocks.
On that says Dorset Cereals on the front.
Cheapest one you can get with no added sugar, then add mixed dried fruit / nuts / banana to taste to vary things.
Ladybirds and weavils add protein and roughage.
Yes I am thinking the too much fruits and nuts`, whilst yummy, could carry fats and sugars.
Porridge is so simple with a few nuts and prunes, just a bit stodgey for summer.
I bought the morrisons Swiss-style, no added sugar (in the blue box) as a tide-me-over until I do a big shop, I now love it and don't buy anything else.
Make it yer sen.
EEEE, I remember when raisins WERE exotic...
yes, and f*cken banana chips.
But won`t 55% fruit mean it is high in Sugar, I thought the balance should be to the Oatey stuff with a little nuts and fruit.
try soaking it overnight in orange juice...much more easily digestable and yummy!
in the normal ukc spirit of giving an answer to a question you didn't ask, have you considered swapping porridge for oatibix instead on the summer? you can then add whatever toppings you want and they're much lower fat/sugar etc than muesli (they're more filing than weetabix).
Just be careful, many people have drowned in muesli over the years having been dragged under by strong currants.
why not just go with Weet-a-bix then.
I used to have a fancy expensive muesli that i found out was 20% sugar so changed to Weet-bix as they are known here in Oz. Slice a banana on top if you need some fruit.
just thought thin healthy people ate Muesli. The boy eats weetabix so we have in the cupboard already, job sorted, thanks.
Merci monsieur :-)
no probs....at only 4% sugar you can't go wrong.

That, or the Skoda Octavia.
Too slow my friend, too slow.
In addition to the usual grass seeds, horse food and raw porrdge in it, you should look for health-fortifying inclusions such as lardons, ham, duck gizzards, capers, anchoves and hard cheese slivers to make it edible as well.
What should you be looking for in a (sic) "Museli"?
Why, that must surely be...the correct spelling!
Can't believe it's got so far - standards are slipping! :-)
Very good, leopold.
Not really. I forgot the foie gras.
Dorset cereals berries and cherries is awesome (although i do tend to cut mine with some extra oats)
I buy the cheapest oats from any supermarket, then add a handful of seeds and nuts bought ready mixed from my fruit and veg shop, then any fruit I might have, whether berries or bananas.
The seed/nut mix is £5 a kilo and lasts me about three weeks.
1Kg Porridge oats
Oven to 180c
Bung the olive oil and honey into a large deep sided baking tray. Stick it in the oven until the two are runny. Take it back out and put all the oats, nuts and seeds in and mix well.
Back into the oven for 5-6 mins. Take out and mix every 5-6 mins for 25-30 mins. For the last 5-6 minute session in the oven add the milled linseed and dried fruit.
Leave to cool and give it the odd stir while cooling.
I can't remember how much oil and honey to use and I now just pour in a good bit of each, certainly half a jar of honey.
The amount and types of fruit, nuts and seeds are entirely to individual taste.
Serve with milk or natural yogurt.
If you're bringing it overnight on the hills pre mix dried milk powder into your container and add water in the morning for brekkie.
Takes about 30 mins in total and you have a good three weeks of muesli that will give you slow release energy and block most toilets.
